Career Planning

The postdoc guidelines of the Helmholtz Association [PDF] demand that every postdoc makes a decision about the direction of their own career no later than four years after completing their doctorate:

Do I want to work towards becoming a professor? Do I want to find a position in industry or start my own business? Do I want to work in the non-profit or public sector?

The Career Center supports postdocs in decision-making. In any case, it is important to establish networks at an early stage and develop your competencies. We offer advice and training.
